UltraShape Power for Ultimate Body Contouring

ultrashape-power-blogDo you have this dilemma? You feel strong and fit in your body. You work out regularly with cardio and strength exercises, make healthy food choices, moderate your caffeine and alcohol intake, maybe even meditate or enjoy yoga. You’ve never really paid much attention to your actual weight, because you believed that your healthy lifestyle would result in the body you wanted, and usually your reflection in the mirror supported that.

Then one day, a slinky dress that hasn’t seen the outside of your closet for many months feels a little snug before a special event. You could blame it on hormones, too much salt, intestinal bloat, even on your washing machine. Maybe you had gotten used to wearing loose tunic tops and swingy dresses, or won’t leave the house without your compression shapewear. You didn’t realize that your fitted clothes weren’t fitting right, you simply were relying on other alternatives to accommodate your changing body. What you might not have considered is that all that healthy living may still not result in where and how any excess fat may decide to locate. For some, fat distribution is not equal, especially as we age and our hormones change. Your response – more exercise, eliminating certain food groups, abstaining from that glass of wine with dinner, drinking copious amounts of water. And as you might notice a difference in your arms, legs, chest and maybe derriere, weeks later that tummy pouch, bra back bulge or donut around your middle is still there. Those are the subcutaneous fat pockets that exercise and diet alone can’t tackle.

And that’s where UltraShape Power shines. UltraShape Power enables fully customizable treatments to meet the unique needs of all of our patients and delivers up to 32% permanent fat reduction. The new UltraShape Power reduces the fat layer thickness targeting the stubborn fat that even diet & exercise fail to eliminate. It uses pulsed and targeted ultrasound technology to target and instantly destroy fat cells safely and comfortably, leaving surrounding nerves, blood vessels and tissue protected. Three half hour treatments, spaced two weeks apart, deliver significant results. No incisions required, and the procedure does not require any type of anesthesia. Because the typical side effects associated with other body contouring methods, notably bruising and soreness, are not experienced, you can return to normal activities right away. The basic requirements after treatment are to drink lots of water, eat healthy, and continue to exercise.

Common Treatment Areas

Problem areas can occur on many different areas of the body, but most people suffer from stubborn fat in the most common areas of fat retention. UltraShape Power excels when treating the following areas:

  • Stomach
  • Hips/love handles
  • inner and outer thighs
  • Bra line
  • Knee fat pads

After the prescribed number of treatments, often within 2 weeks of the initial treatment, results become evident. Many patients report a loss of two to three inches in the treated area, which can result in the patient dropping one to two sizes. Following the destruction of localized fat cells, fat pockets in the treated areas should be greatly reduced. And because the fat is destroyed in a controlled, subtle manner, the skin naturally retracts rather than becoming saggy.

Are Results Permanent?

UltraShape Power is a permanent fat reduction method given that impacted fat cells do not grow back. However, that does not mean you can give up the healthy lifestyle, as the remaining non-ruptured cells can still expand, causing weight gain. And, we stress that it is not realistic for our patients to expect miracles. UltraShape Power is most effective when used as a spot treatment for hard to lose areas, not as a substitute for overall weight loss. Commitment to maintenance of your sleeker profile is key to success. It might just be time to give those compression undergarments a vacation!
